Convocation Challenge, 2016 - Coach DeBoer

The beginning of the school year fills us with many emotions. Whether it is excitement, nerves, regret, anticipation. The list is long. I have had the opportunity to experience the first day of school as a student, teacher, administrator, coach and parent. Although each experience is unique, there are some common threads as well. The one I want to explore a bit is that feeling of a “new beginning” or fresh start.  A new beginning allows us the opportunity for new goals and visions for what’s ahead.

Worship -- Local Pastor

If you attend church regularly, you probably have a Sunday morning routine.  It might not vary much from week to week.  Each week you follow familiar paths to a familiar place to worship with familiar people. 

Familiar is good. 

To be able to come, week after week, to a certain place to worship with certain people, is a gift.  It is a gift we often take for granted. Read more about Worship -- Local Pastor >

Professional Development

Each week we take a period of time for Professional Development.  This article below (taken from a school practicing Teaching for Transformation, the program we are working to implement) shows what we are trying to achieve. The Teaching for Transformation framework is designed to shape our students lives, not just create another task for them (or our teachers) to master.

Senior Presentations - Design

Here I am.  I’m ready to leave the town of Lynden, the school of Lynden Christian, my family, my friends, and my home to pursue a future where nothing is guaranteed but everything is attainable.  It’s as if I’m an airplane, sitting at the end of the runway, ready to accelerate.  But in order to take off, everything on the airplane must be in fully operational condition.  The structural design must be up to the stress of takeoff because even the smallest fault will lead to disaster.

Senior Presentations -- Hard Lessons in Grace

I have attended Lynden Christian schools all the way from pre-school to senior year, and, throughout my school career at LC, there have been good times and bad times. LC has taught me a lot about myself. It has taught me that I am a hard worker and can push my way through anything that comes my way. But, on the bad side, it has shown me that I can take my responsibilities for granted and misuse them. Read more about Senior Presentations -- Hard Lessons in Grace >

Senior Presentation - Packing Up

           Living in a small town you only see yourselves as others see you, but the minute you leave you are exposed to a whole new side of yourself. Every other year my family and I go to Africa. By traveling there every other year, I have really found a passion and love for new places. Africa is a place where my heart can find true happiness and joy, and, because of my experience there, traveling is something this will forever and always be in my life.
